The Haliburton Sculpture Forest, in Glebe Park near the village of Haliburton in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario, Canada, is a unique outdoor collection of sculptures by Canadian and international artists. The trails in the Sculpture Forest—for walking and bike riding in spring, summer and fall and walking, snowshoeing and skiing in the winter—provide changing perspectives of the forest and the sculptures in each of the seasons.
The Sculpture Forest experience is ideal for families looking for an interesting outing, for those who enjoy outdoor trails, and for people looking for a unique artistic experience.
We invite you to tour through this website for more information about the sculptures, the artists, and new additions to the Sculpture Forest and for current projects. Visit our photo gallery to see pictures of the sculptures in all four seasons.
The Sculpture Forest shares the park with the Haliburton Highlands Museum and the Haliburton Campus of Fleming College, home to the Haliburton School of Art + Design; great places to visit after you tour the Sculpture Forest.
Dogs on leash are welcome. Please clean up after your dog! For questions on accessibility and more please see our FAQ page.
There is no charge for admission but we always welcome donations.

Plan Your Trip
The Haliburton Sculpture Forest can be accessed via College Drive where we share parking our main with The Haliburton School of Art + Design, or via Museum road where there is also (limited) parking available.
We would like to acknowledge that we are located on ancestral lands, the traditional territory of the Mississauga Anishinaabe covered by the Williams Treaties. This area, known to the Anishinaabe as “Gidaaki”, has been inhabited for thousands of years – as territories for hunting, fishing, gathering and growing food.
For thousands of years Indigenous people have been the stewards of this place. The intent and spirit of the treaties that form the legal basis of Canada bind us to share the land “for as long as the sun shines, the grass grows and the rivers flow”.
We kindly ask all our visitors to treat the art and the nature of the Haliburton Sculpture Forest with care. The forest is home to lots of wildlife. As visitors, please not to feed them and dispose of garbage and food waste appropriately.
